Good point, but i think that viewers are lessening each time the olympics happen dont you think? They need as much sports in tehre that will attract viewers, and there mainly getting the kids as viewers. Lol, i have to agree with fates, the throwing stone thing..is kinda weird

Any type of publicity is great publicity. Hopefully the Olympics will help the sport grow more and more

I'd say that snowboarding is harder - the number of skiers who want to "hop" over to snowboarding find out quickly enough that it's not easy!

That's a heck of a question, Rox. I was a skier for a long time. I think it's definitely different, and there are different aspects of each that are more difficult. I think a lot of it depends on conditions. If it's a bit icy, then I feel skiing is more challenging. If it's good powder, then I'd say snowboarding.

However, it could be that I do a LOT more skiing than snowboarding. I know this isn't the usual experience, but I get a greater thrill from skiing than snowboarding. Perhaps because I did it for so much longer a period of time.

Well, wish it will be a part of the olympics as I find this snowboarding exciting and full of adventure.

for sure i think its good for it. First of all, snowboarding deserves to be in the olympics theres almost as many snowboarders now as there is skiers. Also its a sport thats really been growing recently and the olympics help get it exposure.

Eh, I don't really care. I snowboard for myself because I find it relaxing from everyday life and enjoyable, plus it's a great social activity. I like watching the X-games in general, so snowboarding falls in there. The olympics are fun to watch but I could care less if snowboarding was on there or not.
